Prepare for your digital journey in a cloud-first world

Legacy IT systems can create a dilemma. While still critical, they can also be an obstacle to the operation and growth of your business. Over time, existing enterprise systems can prove expensive, as their inability to respond to business process change prevents work from being done in new, more effective ways.

Avanade provides Modernisation Services that don’t just drive reduced cost, risk and increased agility. By focusing on the user experience, our approach creates additional business value that results in increased collaboration, productivity and revenue. We do this by consolidating, re-architecting, migrating, replacing and automating your IT systems.

This modernised state puts you on the right road for your digital journey.

“Our flight crews have 15 minutes before every flight to prepare their flight materials. Avanade has helped us cut boot times to just 30 seconds, and totally eliminated printing problems. As you can imagine, this is very important for pre-flight preparation.”
